About the book

This new edition of Corporate Responsibility starts with a fundamental shift in perspective from the previous edition by highlighting the shift from corporate responsibility being a vital business issue, to being the vital issue facing business. In the process the author brings together a comprehensive guide to the subject to addressing contemporary developments in both theory and practice.

A distinct intellectual framework is developed which highlights the ways the issues at the heart of Corporate Responsibility hang together. This links the ethics which underpin the values of corporations and their leadership to the way they exercise their responsibilities as stewards not just of their business but of the natural, human and built environment which they affect. Up-to-the minute research is integrated with case studies that allow the teacher, student and researcher to access the body of contemporary knowledge while responding to a rapidly changing landscape
